    Subject/proc/PID/fd/0 design "bug"

    stdin of any process is accessible via /proc/PID/fd/0.

    So I guess you should be able to enter arbitrary text into any running
    program by doing "echo COMMAND >>/proc/PID/fd/0".

    This doesn't work. (2.0.32) It should work at least for tty based process.

    Is this a bug or intentionally?
